by powerful players in washington and on wall street. you can read how they did it in this book "winner-take-all politics" by two of the country's top political scientists, jacob hacker and paul pierson. they were drawn to a mystery every bit as puzzling as a crime drama "how washington made the rich richer and turned its back on the middle class." quote -- "we wanted to know how our economy stopped working to provide prosperity and security for the broad middle class." and that's what you saw. >> i think a lot of people know. the top one or two wrongs have shot up into the stratosphere while all of the other ones have stayed more or less in place. it's really astonishing how concentrated the games of economic growth have been. >> you know the startling statistic that we have in the book is that if you take all of the income gains from 1979 to 2007, so all the increased household income over that period around 40% of those gains went to the top 1%. and if you look at the bottom 90%, they had less than that combined. and it's not just a one or a two-year story. i mean, we've seen a terri
in the u.s. and district of columbia, washington, thats, will be voting. the pern that receives the post popular vote wins that state or the district and the winner gets all the electoral votes assigned to that state. there are 538 total electoral votes and you need 270 to be the next president. 270 is the magic number. >> winner takes all electoral college system. >> yes. >> except for two states, nebraska and maine. >> that is correct. they are blue states like vermont, new york, california, and there are red states, kentucky, south carolina, and indiana, and i think abc has already reported or called those three states winner of one by romney, by the way, and then there are the swing states or the toss-up states or some people call them the battleground states, virginia, florida, ohio, colorado, iowa, new hampshire, and wisconsin and you need to win votes from electoral votes from these swing states to get to that magic number of 270. the latest poll indicates that before we went into this election day 243 electoral votes secured by obama versus 206 secured by romney, so there are 89
. with the election behind him the president may become more flexible. here in pakistan relations with washington are expected to remain tense. the two sides differ over how to handle elements of al qaeda and other militants hiding in remote areas of pakistan near the afghanistan border. the obama administration has said they're not doing enough to comfort terrorists operationing on pakistani soil. the u.s. have stepped up terror attacks using unmanned drownes. the attacks have aggravated anti-american sentiments. if president obama want this to succeed he must see it in pakistan. >>> all japanese and many people abroad are familiar with oragami. the craft has spread around the world. teachers in israel are using oragami but not to make beautiful figures. >> reporter: math teachers began using oragami about ten years ago. students are making geometry shapes. >> translator: when it comes to solving problems i find that oragami makes it easier. >> reporter: the teacher brought the craft to schools. when she was a child she watched a tv show about oragami. then she started making her own. 20 years a
running the house. that's what prevailed before americans voted, when deadlock reigned in washington, little got done, and the country was frustrated and angry. are we in for more of the same? the talk we are hearing in washington sounds altogether too familiar. so let's consider what's ahead with two people of different philosophies about what should be done. bob herbert was a long-time liberal columnist for "the new york times" until he retired last year and became a distinguished senior fellow for the national think tank demos. he's been on the road for months now, reporting for his forthcoming book, "wounded colossus." reihan salam writes "the agenda," that's a daily blog for the conservative national review online. he is a policy advisor at the think tank economics 21 and a columnist for reuters. he is also the co-author with ross douthat of the much talked-about book, "grand new party: how republicans can win the working class and save the american dream." welcome to both of you. >> great to see you, bill. >> bob, what will you remember about this election? >> well, the first t
to change for the better tomorrow. >> the latest poll from abc news and the washington post suggests 50% of likely voters will cast their ballots for obama. 47% for romney. polls indicate a close race in eight states. some suggest the candidates are running even. others give obama a narrow lead. >> the economy is what i think is number one. >> health care. >> new jobs. >> investors around the world are also closely following the u.s. election. >> a lot of focus on the u.s. election here in japan but investors are looking at the earnings reports coming out of japanese companies this week. let's start by taking a look at stocks here in tokyo. they are trading lower on tuesday morning as investors hold pack from active trading ahead of the presidential election. the nikkei is at 8,970 that's down about 37 points from monday's close. as i said many investors are keeping an eye on upcoming corporate earnings reports for the half year through september. shares of panasonic and sharp are trading lower again. take a look at tokyo for an exchange. trading is limited ahead of tuesday's u.s. presi
in an unprecedented position of power which cannot use. if they sold these bonds, it would put washington under pressure. it would also harm chinese interests. it would see the value of its own investments tumbled. the fact that the western world 's #one superpower should find itself financially dependent on a communist state is one of the trials and tribulations of history. hopefully, there will be positive endings. >> there's i hope that washington and beijing could put an end to it this and focus more on common ground. >> a renewed labor conflict could be brewing in germany. new figures published look to fuel tensions over wage levels in the european leading economy. >> top managers have seen wages increase at but workers have seen their real wages shrink considerably. >> it must be nice being the boss in this global what economy. you get to tell people what to do and you get paid well. but for those working poor you, chances are it's got worse. global competition is putting down wages and as a consequence, the income gap is widening. since 2005, executive salaries have shot up 14%. adjusted
electricity in oregon and washington on monday and rainfall of reported in some locations leading to serious flooding and unfortunately hefty showers will continue from northern california up into washington into your wednesday. that could raise the risk of flooding even more. meanwhile, as for the inland locations, heavy snow showers are pounding and mainly in western montana and light conditions occurring here and conditions will be spreading into idaho on wednesday. gusts could exceed more than 60 kilometers per hour and an additional 50 centimeters of snow is likely. lots of things are going on and it is going to be on going story into your wednesday and on thursday on the u.s. thanksgiving day, sunny skies should return to seattle with a high of ten degrees and as for oklahoma city, warm and sunny day on wednesday but light showers possible on thursday and new york city will continue to see sunny skies into your thursday. all right. moving into east asia then, snow showers are still on going in the northern half of japan, particularly ho died owe and ploe blowing snow advisory and remai
incident you left washington and you went to nevada. that was for a fund-raiser. that's what they're doing and if you think of that many fund raisers, here's an interesting statistic for you. back in 1984, ronald reagan was incumbent president of the united states. he was running for reelection. his campaign had to raise money for the party even though he was taking the federal grant as everyone has until this year in the general election. ronald reagan attended in that year four fund raisers. >> compared to -- >> 221, so we have a president -- this is not an attack on obama. we have a president who is to some extent, not doing their job because they have to be off fund-raising. the romney people felt the same way. romney was heard to be complaining in his campaign that he couldn't go out and meet voters and do what he thought he had to do as a can at because he had to spend all of his time in closed rooms of wealthy people to fund raise in order to get his ads up for his campaign. he couldn't campaign. there's a great irony here and so you have two issues here. one is the time that the pr
conditions for motorists. >> we are joined now by our washington correspondent. how do americans feel about the government's response to the disaster so far? >> it has been generally applauded. unlike 2005 when hurricane katrina devastated new orleans, it seems all the relevant agencies were ready this time, up to speed, especially fema, the federal emergency management agency, that was criticized in 2005 being widely lauded now. the president himself was up all night from monday to tuesday in the situation room in the white house monitoring the situation. now he is touring the disaster areas, especially in new jersey, so he seemed very much concerned and seemed to do everything he could to help the people. he has been applauded even by republican competitors for this. one of his harshest critics has always been new jersey governor chris christie, and this man said that obama was doing an outstanding job. >> elections are right around the corner next week, and campaigns have resumed. it is a difficult question to ask, but who has actually profited from the situation? >> for mitt romney, it
to northern virginia, which is close to washington. it is hard to say here. ohio is the big prize because everybody says whoever wins ohio, the nation goes. obama has been ahead by slight margins but consistently. no republican has ever won the presidency without ohio. >> you are at a republican rally in virginia. how has the mood been? >> the mood with the republican of voters -- the romney people, it has been very good. they are fired up. a lot of people say they are more fired up the nea supporters of the president. they say that the obama people, the obama campaign has a better ground game. there are better organized. in the end, it comes down to turnout. whoever gets these people to show what will win the election. >> thank you very much. we turn our attention now to syria. activists say a suicide bomber has killed at least 50 government soldiers. it comes as there is break out between regime troops and rebels in damascus. >> violence in the capital escalates. they are holding talks. there are under pressure from the international community to find common ground. >> there is no and t
of joining. while prime minister abe may want to join for security reasons there's little faith in washington he can do anything until after the upper house election 2013, and perhaps not even then. so the u.s. will go ahead with tpp, without japan, let japan join later. the u.s. would like japan in it but japan has got to live up to the standards. that's the obama position. >>> market worries are not only focused on the u.s. fiscal cliff. problems in europe are weighing on sentiment. the european commission downgraded its forecast for economic growth next year. the eu executive arm announced its outlook for the 17 eurozone nations on wednesday. the commission now forecasts the eurozone gross domestic product will fall 0.4% in 2012 from a year earlier. that's the first negative growth in three years. it also predicts near zero growth, 0.1% for 2013. that's down 0.9% from its may forecast. the commission warns of more negative growth for cash-strapped greece and spain, and four other eurozone nations in 2013. it says the region's leading economy, germany, can expect growth of only 0.8%. that's
second term. >> for more on this developing story, we are joined by our washington correspondent. how serious are the allegations against general allan? what sort of wrongdoing is the alleged to have been involved in? >> it is very serious. there were -- there is an investigation going on. there were some 30,000 pages of e-mails between the top commander in afghanistan and this lady in florida, mrs. kelly, and you really do not know exactly what is in those e- mails, but according to the american media, they say that there is -- that those are inappropriate communication. just a couple of minutes ago, he said that there was no affair. nevertheless, there was a plan that general allan would become the new supreme -- the nato supreme allied commander in europe, and i think this is not going to happen -- that general allen would become the new nato supreme allied commander. >> water the implications of this for the obama administration -- what are the implications? >> i think it is very bad. the fbi investigation about petraeus and this affair that was going on for months, and the white
look at the east coast, a pair of 11s there in new york and washington, d.c. and then into europe, also continuing to watch a storm system push onshore across portugal and spain. as this does move overhead, it is already creating some high wind and heavy waves and even heavy rain warnings there in portugal, eventually into spain. then we'll watch this into the early part of the workweek on monday and tuesday. there could be some severe weather out there towards the central mediterranean and even over towards italy. you're already seeing some rough weather due to this low-pressure area pushing out across this area. we're seeing storm warnings in effect as this continues to move overhead and bringing with it heavy rain. north of it, though, look at these clear skies. one thing you are watching is some fog, especially through the early morning hours, there in poland. that's going to dramatically reduce the visibility so slow down on the roads. as far as temperatures, single digits into the east, but getting into the double digits in london and paris with a pair of 12s. now here's a look at

it is up to politicians in washington to find a solution. no easy task, considering the partisan divisions in congress. the democrats who control the senate do not want cuts to social benefits. the republicans who form a majority in the house of representatives are opposed to tax hikes. time is running out. both democrats and republicans have indicated a willingness to compromise, but business owners are skeptical. and many american business people are very concerned that the politicians will not accomplish certainty, and instead, they will blame each other and this will cause more uncertainty. >> especially when it comes to orders from the defense industry. i of the country falls over the fiscal cliff, huge cuts to the u.s. military budget will take place automatically -- if the country falls over the fiscal cliff. >> coming up, a new mozart interpretation that uses the latest in animation technology. >> but first, a roundup of stories making news now. the former israeli opposition leader has announced she will return to politics to lead a new party called the movement. the former foreign
